Snowy Hollow Siberian Cats — Breeder selling sick kittens
It's been 3 months since purchasing my kitten from Snowy Hollow the beginning of October 2016 and I cannot recommend you purchase a kitten from Anastasia. The day after we took her home we took him to the vet because we were kind of concerned about his eye. This was something that I asked her about when we went to pick him up. She told me that he wasn't sick and that sometimes that happens with kittens when they are stressed. The vet diagnosed him with an upper respiratory infection. I guess I have to take some responsibility for taking her word for it and not being more picky. Well in the past three months I've basically just had a sick kitten. He's probably only been well for about a week or two the whole time. And this is after lots of vet bills and visits. I've kept Anastasia in the loop about it and she is sympathetic but doesn't offer much else. I personally don't think it's very ethical breeding practice to sell a sick kitten to someone. Especially with the price tag that comes with them. Right now, my Percy has a bad eye. Same eye that I was suspicious of when I brought him home. My vet said that Percy has feline herpes. I have no other cats so he contracted it before I got him. Now that I am a unhappy customer, my emails don't get answered. I would steer clear. If a breeder can't guarantee a healthy kitten, then I can't in good conscience recommend them. Now I know that sometimes cats just get sick, but when I bring a new kitten home and the next day the vet says it's sick...well it was sick before I took it home. That falls in the breeders hands. We are attached to Percy now, but it's very upsetting to look at my expensive cat and see a cat with a bad eye. His third eyelid is halfway closed all the time and his pupil doesn't dilate correctly. It may or may not go away. Who knows. I suspect that we will have lots of vet bills in the future. Possibly a surgery. Steer clear and find another breeder. This was my first time buying a pure bred cat and it's been a very bad experience.

Honestly I would like my money back. Maybe an exchange although I would be concerned of the health of a different kitten.
